COVID-19 Resources: For Persons with Dementia and Families
With the current preventive measures to limit Singaporeans’ movements (e.g. closure of most eldercare services and facilities; disallowing dining-in at public eating places), many persons with dementia’s routines may be disrupted to a large extent.
